No, we don't. The UK builds things called "bypasses" but most are really "relief roads" because we fail to close the routes through the heart to through traffic. I discuss this in viewtopic.php?f=6&t=129801

Yeah but both roads are often still congested which shows the capacity of both old and new roads is needed.

Or maybe it shows that motoring expands to fill the space available, also known as induced traffic - but let's discuss that in the other topic, please.

Nice write-up, I'm a struggling learner in German.

I got a bit confused by Zoll meaning both Customs and Inch.

Umgehungsstrasse ("walking-round road") is bypass, not Umfahrungsstrasse :wink:
